I went from a strict conservative to a moderate.

I went from moderate economic social authoritarian to extreme right wing economic social libertarian.

And Agnostic to Atheist but that's really not that big of a change.

Well, I've changed through other forums before coming here, so I haven't really changed much since coming here.

DDO hasn't really changed my views, I've never really strayed from the path of moderation :P, but, I learned a lot about other view points.

The things I am now I have always been but didn't realize it. I have always questioned religion and bitterly resented it on the inside, but I still called myself a Christian and defended the Bible. I have also always believed that all people are victims of life that don't really choose their personalities, but it wasn't until DDO that I learned what determinism was.

DDO doesn't change my beliefs as it does reveal them to me.

My views haven't changed, if anything they've only grown stronger when put under scrutiny.

My beliefs are battle-hardened!

Hard right wing conservative FTW

Moderate libertarian to radical civil libertarian, and near anarcho-capitalist.

I did not mellow out.

I'm a little more conservative now, and my religious beliefs are a little more strengthened because of the excellent theist debaters on this site (though the atheists have good points as well and there are tons of great atheist debaters too).

Was a Liberal Democrat before coming to DDO and abandoned that and all political ideologies to become pure conspiracist. Then began learning more about political science and political philosophy and became Anarchist. Then Panarchist. Then started leaning to Right Libertarianism with Capatalism/Free markets and all that. Now I am Left Libertarian. So in short:

I haven't really changed much. If anything I became more economically right-wing. I remember being pretty hardcore socialist when I first joined. O.o

From self described liberal who didn't know anything about economics to non-doctrinaire libertarian (kind of like darkkermit who is generally libertarian but willing to consider/evaluate individual solutions based on on time and place). DDO is one of my favorite websites on the internet, next to wikipedia.

I went from a Moderate Liberal, to a Center-Left Progressive. Although some views of mine have changed conservative (affirmative action, free trade), I have also strengthened my progressive values.

Belief-wise I have changed very little. I may have become more libertarian, especially in regards to the economy and property rights.

As a person I have changed tremendously. I think I have become a sociopath, which is a result of reading FREEDO's posts at four in the morning.
